Who Needs To Jailbreak 6.1.3? Saurik Jailbreaks Google Glass

Who Needs To Jailbreak iOS 6.1.3? Saurik “Jailbreaks” (Roots) Google Glass – Jailbreaking: the process of achieving root access on a device to install third-party software modifications that would otherwise be restricted. Typically, when individuals think of jailbreaking, they immediately assuming that the term is exclusive to iOS and Apple’s iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models, however that’s not the case. Furthermore, the term jailbreak extends far beyond iOS 6 and Apple’s latest 6.1.3 firmware, which we’ve discussed at length in the past few weeks on Evasion Jailbreak 6.1.3 Tutorials. If jailbreaking is simply defined as the process of achieving root access and “freeing” your device from restrictions and limitations, then “jailbreaking” can also be used as a synonym for rooting an Android device.  So how about Google Glass? Where will the forthcoming device fall in the world of hacking and jailbreaking?

For those of our readers who aren’t familiar with the new technology, Google Glass is an upcoming product from Google that’s set to revolutionize the way we interact with the digital world. Through interfacing with smartphones, the post-PC device is capable of accomplishing simple tasks such as responding to messages, finding the answers to various questions and getting directions – all at a glance and without physically interfacing with a device. Although we could spend the entire article discussing Google Glass in a more in-depth manner, that’s not why we’re here.

Set to go on sale to the general public later this year, Google has already opened Glass up to a very select number of developers who placed reservations at Google I/O 2012 and those who were accepted through the companies #ifihadglass application process. In the conquest of hacking and mobile software development Saurik, or Jay Freeman (the genius behind Cydia for jailbroken iOS devices), has taken it upon himself to develop the first “jailbreak” for Glass, which is powered by a modified version of pure Android developed by Google.

Upon receiving his pre-release Glass unit, Saurik immediately stated tinkering with the device: enabling adb (Android Debugging tool) through the device’s Settings menu during the personalized orientation from two “Glass Guides” employees that were instructed to help early developers grasp the concept of Glass and walk them through interfacing with Glass. At this point, through research and further tampering, Saurik came across an exploit for Android that could potentially lead to root access on any Android device that runs 4.0.x (Glass is powered by Android 4.0.4).

After learning about a previously discovered exploit, Saurik went to work and was able to successfully achieve root access on Glass, using only the Android SDK, the payload exploit that functions with an adb restore and su (SuperUser). For the sake of simplicity, we won’t go in-depth on the process in this article – if you’re interested in the steps Saurik took to root Google Glass, we recommend reading his extraordinarily lengthy article.

Although this isn’t the typical jailbreak news we report on here at Evasion Jailbreak, it’s undeniably interesting and it makes us excited for the future of mobile device hacking. What are your thoughts on Glass and jailbreaking gadgets that aren’t powered by Apple’s iOS, namely Android devices? We’d love to hear what you think in the comment section.

    I have an iPhone 4 and made the untethered jailbreak on iOS 6.1.3, so far is working pretty well, the only thing is that I have to avoid the battery to die, otherwise is necessary to reboot thru the computer. Hopefully the Tethered jailbreak is coming soon. Greetings from Mazatlan, México!!

  13. Gchnv says:

    I own an iPhone and I had an iOS 6.1.2 jailbreak it is was good for the time but then the evasi0n jailbreak got boring. Jailbreaking is good but after a while, it sucks as it messed up my iPhone. iPhone’s are amazing phones and all but I admit Android are better as it is an open Mobile Operating System rather than apple’s stupid old prison iOS

      Just wait until iOS 7 😀 The biggest problem we have with Android is its fragmentation. Also, Apple has done an incredible job of creating the best cross-platform ecosystem with iMessage/Messages, iCloud and iTunes.

  14. Dmaneri says:

    I’ve always gone with iPhones. And it seems android is surpassing all of the functionalities of the iPhone. Time to switch… No more waiting for jailbreaks.

  15. michael says:

    You are all DENSE, they already said that they aren’t going to release a 6.1.3 jailbreak, get over it.

  16. Mirraman says:

    I’m growing very tired of the iPhone in general. The iOS even with the latest version just seems dated. It’s like apple is dedicating more time to restrictions on their system than innovation. There haven’t been any decent hardware upgrades, save for a pathetic screen size increase, in some time. I’m looking towards the HTC One. A buddy of mine has on and the phone is legit. It is easily rooted like all android phones so I can personalize it however I want.

  17. P72d says:

    Me toooooo. I do not understas how i could uppdate My ipad mini. Fuck fuck fuck. I love to see a 6.1.3 jailbreak.

  18. Jezzz says:

    I need jailbreak 6.1.3 !!!!! Plzz

  19. Phillip says:

    That’s why I stick with android as my daily driver and ios as a secondary play platform. Root is always swiftly available and free of charge for popular phones. The iPhone is very popular, but the root process is lengthy!
